I thought I’d take a quick look at the stats for each punter through the first two preseason games. The sample sizes are small, but trends are beginning to emerge.
Dixon has the slight edge in distance, but Colquitt has nailed 5/6 inside the 20. As we’ll see later, Colquitt has had his average dragged down by several punts on the plus side of the field.

I wanted to go a little more in depth and provide a position by position break down of the community’s projections. I’ll give a brief commentary as well. I think I’m going to do another iteration of this next week. People can either leave their projected roster as is, or they can submit an updated post. I’ll post another link after the game Saturday.
Below the fold, this post contains a table of all the players the 11 participants of the 2016 Broncos Predict The Roster disagreed upon.
(Note that I have also indicated practice squad representatives for those of you who mentioned them in your comment. If you did not list a practice squad but would like to, list it in a comment in another thread you see me on (for some reason comments aren’t working here), or email me directly or via the contact form, and I will update the table accordingly.)

I’m going to examine some of the most notable battles for starting jobs and roster spots and when I expect head coach Gary Kubiak will make his final decisions.

This is my personal opinion, so take everything with a grain of salt. I don’t feel like writing a long introduction, but I will have additional thoughts at the end, so without further ado:
